M&A Change Management
Integrating Cultures & Managing Change for Mergers & Acquisitions
Often times in M&A, organizations are prioritizing financial and systems due diligence at the expense of other vital, intangible assets critical to a merger process – things such as business culture, human capital, company structure and corporate governance.
Various research reports show that companies failing to take these factors into account when planning and implementing will fail to deliver against their objectives.
